I'm far too indecisive to pick a favorite show but there have been some fantastic recs so far. Here are a few additions:

Glens Falls Civic Center:
http://www.archive.org/details/gd80-05-08.sbd.carman.15034.sbeok.shnf
A good if not great show but it has the best Stella Blue between 74 and 94. Jerry's guitar tone on the closing solo is indescribably perfect. If you listen to nothing else in this list, listen to this.

MS River Festival:
http://www.archive.org/details/gd1980-08-16.SonyECM250.walker-scotton.miller.88959.sbeok.flac16
White hot show, especially China-Rider.

Favorite Night of the Warfield/Music Hall run:
http://www.archive.org/details/gd1980-10-10.mtx.chappell.sb03.28740.flac16
Beautiful recording of the acoustic set and the electric delivers the goods. Especially Althea, Jack Straw and Scarlet->Fire.

Rochester:
http://www.archive.org/details/gd80-09-02.aud.skankweed.26458.sbeok.shnf
Another hot show, smoking Sugaree and a great Morning Dew not to be missed. The AUD isn't pristine but it packs more punch than the SBD IMO plus the crowd reaction in Morning Dew->Sugar Magnolia is epic.

Saenger:
http://www.archive.org/details/gd80-10-19.set1-aud.vernon.16908.sbeok.shnf
If you can stand the poor quality of the recording this acoustic set is phenomenal. The jamming is much more exploratory, jazzy and Grateful Dead like than many of their other acoustic sets. Listen to Cassidy and Bird Song.

Anchorage:
http://www.archive.org/details/gd1980-06-21.mtx.dan.28470.sbeok.flac16
This show was already mentioned above but I had to link to the matrix which is one of the tastiest recordings on the whole archive. Sugaree!

This is a new 24 bit aud of 9/2/80. A nice upgrade with more clarity and seperation that our 'ol reliable "skankweed". The entire fall tour is smokin'.

As Utopian said, 9/6 is absolutely huge.

I like a lot of the shows after the Radio City run. Alligator Alley and the Fox Theater come to mind instantly.

I do and have loved this little 2 night run at the Arena for quite some time now.

The Swing on the 12th is nice but pales in comparison to these two nights in my opinion.

2 more to add to the excellent list (I rank 1980 just behind 1981 in the post Keith era.)

Would love to see a SBD of that second show. I know parts of it have shown up in the tapers section, so I know it's out there.

there is a sbd source for Landover here at the archive, unfortunately it is quite muddy (overdriven rec levels?) to me it seems to clear up after a couple of tracks, i notice other reviewers disagree with my optimistic assessment, this recording really captures Jer's guitar more so than the aud's

stellar Comes A Time and the Truckin' outro smokes;

David Lemieux played Jed through Deal at the tapers section on dead.net and the sound was not bad. The whole show is so good, if only there was a good SBD it would be more well known. I'll check out your link, thanks for the heads up.

Perhaps the best acoustic set of 1980, certainly the most enjoyable...

I also like 10/14/80 from the Warfield run.
http://www.archive.org/details/gd80-10-14.sbd-aud.gardner.3828.sbeok.shnf

Also of interest is the FotM/second Mt. St. Helens eruption show:
http://www.archive.org/details/gd80-06-12.aud.willy.11361.sbeok.shnf

Another favorite of mine is the Jim Wise aud of 10/31 if nothing else simply to hear the FotM (Dead Set) go into NFA.

I was about to recommend that Warfield show - great second set which includes one of my favourite 'Morning Dews'.
